    We are hoping to visit a synagogue in Nottingham next half-term, but we are still waiting to secure a date and coach travel. We will update you when we know more about this, and we hope to be able to take some parent helpers with us. 

    We will be doing some geography fieldwork as well in our local area - we will confirm the date shortly. This will involve a village walk and again, we would really appreciate some help with this if you are able to.

    Other things to look forward to: music evening, sports week and sports day, school reports and our summer production. More details to follow! 

    Have a great half-term holiday,

    Miss Jackson

These past few weeks have been jam-packed with the King's Coronation, SATs week, Walking to School Week', and D.T. day! Not only this, but the children have learnt about some very exciting topics and have carried out a lot of practical experiments within Science which has enabled us to go outside and enjoy the sun a bit more. Take a look at what we got up to!

    What a day! The children have loved celebrating the new King-to-be. We have enjoyed a variety of different activities, ate lunch on the field as a school in the sun (we're lucky that we missed all that rain) and even had a tasty, surprise visit from the ice-cream man.  The day has been jam-packed and so rest-well over the long weekend.

    Today, Base 1 were very lucky as we were visited by Val who kindly spent some time with Year 1 and Year 2 to talk to us about her experience of seaside holidays when she was a little girl. In preparation, the children came up with some interesting questions to ask Val about her special memories. We learnt that instead of swimming costumes we wear today, Val wore different clothes which were heavier than swimming costumes. We also found out that out that summer hats and caps were not invented back then and so people were creative and wore linen cloths on top of their heads in order to not get sun burnt.

    Furthermore, we found out that there were some similarities of seaside holidays back then and today. Fish and chips, ice cream and sweets have always been traditional types of food eaten at the seaside as well as donkey rides.

    Take a look at some of the photos we took when we met Val.

    Welcome back! I hope you all had a super Easter break and managed to relax with family and friends. This new term we have a lot of new and exciting topics for the children to learn and we are all very much looking forward to warmer weather as the weeks progress.  

    Please remember to keep reminding your child to practice their weekly spellings in preparation for our Monday spelling tests. Physical spelling sheets are provided every Monday for your child to take home and learn, ready for the following Monday. There are also the termly overviews of the spellings in the back of your child's Reading Roots Record Book. 

    This first week back, the children will receive a new homework sheet (History) for this half-term. Please complete at least three different activities to bring into show and tell afternoons (Monday) to share with the rest of the class - if your child is feeling extra creative they are more than welcome to complete more than three activities. The more the merrier. 

    Please continue to keep an eye out on Doodle Maths as assignments are regularly added and using the website often is great practice for keeping learning fresh, especially in preparation for the upcoming Year 2 SATs in May. 

    As part of out Year 2 SATs prep, the children will be provided with some extra worksheets (additional if requested) to help support their learning and ensure they feel a little more confident within their areas of learning.

    Below you shall find attached all the key documents for this half-term.

    Another term has come to an end and all the children have deserved a long Easter break after their hard work and effort over this Spring half-term.  I hope you all have a wonderful time off and I look forward to seeing the children back for Summer 1 refreshed and rested.  

    A few last reminders: please continue to look over the Year 2 Common Exception words and your child's interim report targets, as well as the weekly spellings in preparation for their test on Monday 17.04.23. I shall also be setting some Doodle Maths assignments in case you have some free time on your hands. 

    Enjoy Easter egg hunting!

  • Seaside Holiday Photos

    Published 28/03/23, by Claire Jones


    We are excited to announce that our next history topic is 'Seaside Holidays'. We are going to be looking at seaside holidays today and in the past. This includes Victorian seaside holidays and holidays from the 1950s/1960s. We would love to have photos of your child at the seaside if you have them and also if you do have any historical artefacts (souvenirs etc) and photos, that would be great! Please send these in named and in a labelled envelope in the new term. We will photocopy these and display them in the classroom.
